Where your money goes
As Hft is a charity, we understand the importance of making every penny count. We’re partially government funded to provide basic support that is person-centred and designed to achieve the best possible outcomes for the people we support – but that funding can only stretch so far.
That’s where donations come in. Your donations make a big difference in helping us support adults with learning disabilities to live the best lives possible, by giving us the means to pay for the ‘added extras’ that really change lives.
These are just some of the ways your money is spent to support people:
- £5 a month helps towards the cost of a work experience placement for someone with a learning disability who has set themselves the goal of getting a job
- £12 a month helps towards making the adaptations to a house that are needed for people as they age (such as stair lifts or adapted bathrooms) so they can stay in their own homes for longer
- £25 helps pay for a group music therapy session involving singing, playing instruments or moving to music, to increase confidence and improve speech
- £50 helps with the cost of installing personalised technology such as bed sensors, or fingerprint locks, which can help someone to live independently in their own home
- £500 helps pay for the staff training needed to enable someone with profound and multiple learning disabilities to communicate effectively with their carers – giving them a voice.
Whether it’s a one-off donation, a regular payment or perhaps even a gift in your will, your generosity can make a real and positive difference to the lives of the people we support, helping them live with more independence and choice.
